I'm student of XML and need some help.
I'm trying to use the muenchian grouping to extract the first occurance of each movie title. There are no duplicate titles in a ballot, but the title can be repeated in each ballot. My code only extracts the first move from the first ballot.

Thanks
Desmond

XML document format
<poll> root element
<ballot id="b1">
<movie>A FISH CALLED WANDA (1988)</movie>
<movie>ADAM'S RIB (1949)</movie>
<movie>ANNIE HALL (1977)</movie>
.
.
.
</ballot>
<ballot id="b2">
<movie>A DAY AT THE RACES (1937)</movie>
<movie>A SHOT IN THE DARK (1964)</movie>
<movie>AMERICAN GRAFFITI (1973)</movie>
.
.
.
</ballot>
<ballot id="b3">

Your code works exactly right for me. What is the problem you're experiencing?
